Proffessional cybercrime takes hold

#133 Kaspersky has released a free executive guide to the changing face of cybercrime that I found worthwhile reading. We have discussed in a few previous blog entries about this emerging phenomenon "Virus writers go under the radar" and "Ransomware".

Computer attacks have already undergone a radical shift. These attacks have emerged as business for profit and disruption. It’s no longer about teenagers looking for glory. Now it’s become a real business. These malicious attacks can be severe - identity theft, fraud and extortion. They are becoming more frequent and faster than ever before - and there’s no sign of letting up.

In this executive brief, they discuss the magnitude of the new generation of cyber-crime, direction these threats are headed and what is needed to fight back. Registration is required for the download.
